Absolute Software just released Absolute Manage 6.4.2, an update which supports Apple’s new device enrollment program (ADEP).
Absolute Manage allows organizations to persistently manage and secure all of their endpoints from a single console, including Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices. The latest release of Absolute Manage provides customers with zero-touch configuration for iOS deployments, streamlining the device setup process. Customers have the ability to include mandatory Absolute Manage enrollment, ensuring devices cannot be removed from management. Wireless supervision can be enabled to provide a higher level of oversight, providing additional features such as web-content filtering. These enhancements allow enterprise customers to significantly reduce the workload required when provisioning new iOS devices. Using Absolute Manage, customers can set up all devices consistently with minimal end-user input.
“Portland Public Schools worked closely with the development teams at Apple and Absolute Software to pilot the ADEP process. The ability to provision iPads over the air will significantly reduce the amount of time spent physically preparing iPads, allowing our school-based staff to focus on other meaningful work,” said Jonathan Vail, User Experience Management Lead at Portland Public Schools. “Additionally, applying permanent management profiles will increase security and maintain desired configurations for each device.”
We are just as excited as our customers with this release, and have created a short video demonstrating the benefits of Absolute Manage and ADEP.
